All better......and a birthday.

This is the face that I got to enjoy all day. He's back, he's better, and he's mine. He is back to exploring, smiling, and sleeping. Yay for me:)

This weekend was so busy, not only was it Joel's birthday weekend, but it was the weekend of the mothers volleyball tournament here in our town. Each school 7 elementary, the junior high, the high school, and alumni moms, each have a team, or several teams depending on the amount of moms that play. I know what you are thinking, moms volleyball??? No, no it is competitive, and there are some gray haired moms that can knock the ball down your throat. Our team played a total of 29 games Friday night through Sunday. This pregnant body is tired, but I am proud to say we got second place, out of 18 something teams!!!!! Out for a walk, it was so nice today!

Sunday was Joel's 5th birthday. I cant believe how much he has grown, and that he will be going to kindergarten next year. My 9lb 10oz baby, isn't a baby anymore. On Saturday we had a pool party with some friends from school at a local hotel, and Noah, Joel and I spent the night. Then on Sunday (his birthday) we opened gifts in the morning, and had a family party that night.








Happy birthday Joel!!!!!!! You are sweet, silly, smart, funny, sensitive, adorable, and your my boy. I love you.
